Police officer embarks on lone protest, shed tears as he narrates ordeals (Watch)
A police sergeant has lamented the struggling of safety operatives deployed to combat bandits in Yobe State, urging the federal government to come to their rescue.
The sergeant, in a viral tape shared on Twitter on Wednesday, alleged that there was an assault on his command in Gujba, Yobe State, on June 17, adding that a number of police officers were slaughtered.
He pointed out that the Boko Haram militants burnt the belongings of those that overcame the onslaught, questioning why their sacrifice was not returned by the government.
The officer was recorded by a pal, whereas one other cop struggled to recoup the piece of their destroyed items.
He mentioned, “Good morning fellow Nigerians. See what happened to me in Gujba. In Gujba, there was an attack on the 17th.
They killed my colleagues, they killed Paul.
See us that survived today, see how they burnt our properties.
“Then, since we came for operation in Yobe State since December, making it seven months today, no feeding, no allowance, nothing!
Because of the N53,000, I’m collecting in Nigeria Police as a sergeant, I’m dying in Yobe State. Look at how they’re burning our issues.
Look at how many people have died. Nigeria, look into our problem; we’re dying. No helper. What are we dying on this nation for?
God is there.”
The Power Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, couldn’t be reached for a remark. A text message despatched to him has not been responded to as of press time. Video
